Small slate today without a ton of elite value! Let’s get into it.

Dwight Howard will be one of the more popular plays on today’s slate. Embiid is still out for the Sixers. Simmons was one assist short of a triple-double yesterday. Simmons and Harris are great guys to target after they disappointed yesterday.

Nickeil Alexander-Walker dealt with foul trouble in the Pelican’s last game. He was high owned and people may shy away from going back to him. He is one of the better value plays on the slate. Brandon Ingram and Zion Williamson are two of the better spends ups on today’s slate. if playing multiple Pelicans players, it makes sense to run it back with a player like Fox.

Roby will continue to get run as Al Horford is expected to miss today. Roby has been a great per-minute producer. On a slate with limited value, he is a priority.

My least favorite game on the slate is Indiana vs LAC. There are some nice spend ups that you can correlate. Sabonis and Kawhi correlation is a situation you should explore for GPPs.
